Marinated Cucumbers & Onions
My husband and I enjoy these by themselves, mixed with tomatoes, or placed on top of a mixed green salad.
1Peel & thinly slice cucumbers & onions.
2Place the cucumbers in a colander on a plate. Sprinkle with 1 T of salt. Place onions on top of cucumbers and sprinkle with 1 T of salt.
3Place in refrigerator or cover with plastic wrap and place a freezer pack on top for 2 hours.
4Meanwhile, place water, vinegar & sugar in a small pot and heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat & allow to cool.
5After 2 hours, squeeze as much liquid as possible from the cucumbers & onions as possible. Place in a bowl, season with pepper, if desired, and pour marinade mixture over them. Refrigerate.
6Remove from marinade to serve.
